They may have missed out on signing Mark Mayambela, but Chippa United are confident of signing both Mbulelo Mabizela and Moussa Maazou before the end of the week.
The Chilli Boys agreed a fee with Orlando Pirates for the talented midfielder, but was told that he is apparently holding out for a move to Kaizer Chiefs.
However, good news is that Chippa believe they will sign out-of-favour Bidvest Wits defender Mabizela today still.
"We are very close to concluding Mabizela's deal; it should be done by this afternoon at the latest," club owner Chippa Mpengesi tells KickOff.com.
"We paid the Maazou transfer fee with his team in Tunisia and hope to meet with his agent to finalise the deal by the end of this week."
Chippa have also been credited with interest in Kaizer Chiefs striker Abia Nale, but have reportedly been priced out of a move.
One player who has joined is former Under-23 international Phumelele Bhengu.
